A Thank You, A Week Filled With Mad Men and Links

A huge thank you to Serendipity's Guide to Saving for having an awesome NOVICA giveaway, because... 
I WON!!!
As you might have guessed I wasted no time and bought some Christmas presents. These aren't even the first presents I bought for Christmas this year. I am a wee bit of a neurotic Christmas preparer. I am a little more than excited to wrap these up for my children. We love games and they are just starting to learn to play chess. 

Oh, did you want to win a NOVICA giftcard too? Well, guess what. You can have that opportunity with Mysti's giveaway over at Digging Out From Our Mess. Go. Check it out.

In other news this week, did you know Mad Men is now available on instant streaming for Netflix? Hot damn! It's been a good week. I loved watching the first episode again and every episode after that.

Alright, we can stop staring at the fabulousness that is Joan, Don and Roger. On to the links!
